Beach in the Backyard
And an idea for the very ambitious beach enthusiast -build an entire beach somewhere in your backyard! Via Sunset Magazine. The fire pit base is an old kettle barbecue, with bottom vents open and grill in place to hold firewood, nestles in the gravel. Flagstones surround the kettle rim; a steel-mesh spark arrestor fits over the top.

Make sure to check local fire codes regarding fire pit installation. If you are building a permanent structure, you’ll probably need a permit.
